Secondary vocational-technical education programs in Mississippi are faced with many challenges resulting from sweeping educational reforms at the national and state levels. Schools and teachers are increasingly being held accountable for providing true learning activities to every student in the classroom. This accountability is measured through increased requirements for mastery and attainment of competency as documented through both formative and summative assessments. The courses in this document reflect the statutory requirements as found in Section 37-3-49, Mississippi Code of 1972, as amended (Section 37-3-46). In addition, this curriculum reflects guidelines imposed by federal and state mandates (Laws, 1988, ch. 487, Section 14; Laws, 1991, ch. 423, Section 1; Laws, 1992, ch. 519, Section 4 effective from and after July 1, 1992; Carl D. Perkins Vocational Education Act III, 1998; and No Child Left Behind Act of 2001). Aging Services is an instructional program that prepares individuals to perform tasks involved in providing personal care to elderly clients under the supervision of qualified staff members. This personal care includes management of their health, home, retirement, recreational needs, dietary needs, and safety needs. A student completing this program could be employed in nursing homes, home health agencies, homemaker agencies, assisted living facilities, or adult day care centers, or as an in-home sitter. Students who complete this program are eligible to take the Homemaker examination administered through the Mississippi Department of Education, Office of Vocational and Technical Education. The curriculum references the National Health Care Skill Standards. Appended are: (1) National Health Care Skill Standards; (2) Academic Standards; (3) Workplace Skills for the 21st Century; and (4) National Educational Technology Standards for Students. (Contains 7 footnotes.)
